One of the more permaculture-minded episodes of the magic school bus.

This was also my introduction to the idea of debating. I was never convinced of the benefits, and I'm so glad permies is a discussion based forum, not a debate based one.

Silly episode, you can't build IN a swamp, you have to build ON TOP OF a swamp. Then have a continuing fund to keep the pumps running that keep the water from returning to where it wants to be.
